WHP Troopers Safely Locate a Female involved in a multi-state Domestic Disturbance

On February 4, 2023, at approximately 12:46 p.m., Wyoming Highway Patrol (WHP) Troopers were dispatched to a possible domestic disturbance in the area of Bitter Creek Rest Area within Sweetwater County. The reporting party told the patrol dispatch they thought the driver of a grey Volvo semi-tractor trailer was dealing with a domestic disturbance with her ex-boyfriend.

WHP Troopers located the vehicle parked within the eastbound Bitter Creek Rest Area on Interstate 80 in Sweetwater County. As the occupants were interviewed, it was learned that the male was not supposed to be in the commercial truck.

The female driver told troopers that the male was her ex-boyfriend and had entered her vehicle without her knowledge in California. She said he had physically and sexually abused her in the truck over the past several days while she was transporting the commercial cargo. She also stated he stabbed her in the leg.

As the male was interviewed, he initially gave false information about his name to conceal his identity. The male was identified as Alejandro Delgado, a resident of California, and had an active warrant for his arrest out of California.

Mr. Delgado was arrested and booked into the Sweetwater County Detention Center on the following charges:

• NCIC Warrant (No Bond, Full Extradition for Parole Violation out of Bakersfield, California) - Felony

• Interference with a Peace Officer – Misdemeanor

This is an ongoing investigation.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol would like to thank the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Department for its help with this investigation.
